To keep this growth in continuation basis the Industry needs proper Machinery, Raw Materials, Yarn, Fabric, Dyes & Chemicals in regular basis.
He also added, Bangladesh now has set a goal to become a middle income country by 2021, under the dynamic leadership of our Hon’ble Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. Which is the 50th anniversary of our independence; the Government of Bangladesh has set a target of earning 60billion USD from export. To achieve this target we need to focus more on value added, high-end apparel items rather than basic, traditional products to make the business sustainable throughout the fierce competition in the global garment trade.
